Name: Philip 5th Baron DARCY , of Knayth, Sir 1
Birth: ABT 1398 in Knaith, Gainsborough, Lincolnshire, England 1
Death: 2 AUG 1418 in (dspm) 1
Note: Douglas Richardson, editor of the Plantagenet Ancestry, names him "5th Lord Darcy", but CP doesn't seem to recognize him as a Baron. CP does this quite often; Baronies are supposedly inheritable, but CP doesn't recognize the inheritance in the early years.
